Training on the Cutting Edge

Dobbins, Zachary; Juel, Heidi; Mendelsohn, Susan E.; Rouland, Roger; Schonberg, Eliana

Writing center consultants are leading busier and busier lives. As writing centers become standard fixtures in schools and communities, consultants are expected to enact educational, legislative and corporate change. However, while the demands on us are increasing, so are the tools we have at our disposal. Today’s writing center consultant is presented with a smorgasbord of training alternatives both within our own centers and online. Tried and true training approaches are still with us–classes, workshops, staff meetings, role-playing, observations, and mentoring–but they are increasingly supplemented by these new possibilities.
